Piscataway Travel Guide
Piscataway Local History
The Town of Piscataway was founded in 1666. The area was bought from the local Lenape Indians who thrived in the area, which offered good hunting and fishing.
In the 18th century mansions were built by some of the rich families, roads started to appear and bridges were built over rivers. In the 19th century, industry slowly replaced the farms and a variety of tradesmen made the town their home.
Today, Piscataway is no longer a large farming community, but a small industrial town.
